News from the Texas Workforce Commission:
If you are self-employed, a contract worker, or previously worked in a position that did not report wages, you may qualify for unemployment!
How to apply:
- If you applied for unemployment benefits but did not monetarily qualify, no action is needed. They will determine if you are eligible under the new stimulus bill and notify you by mail or electronic correspondence of your eligibility.
- If you’ve never applied for benefits, sign-up to receive a notification when their system is ready for you to apply: http://bit.ly/TXUIUpdate
Please note, if you attempt to access the system or call before receiving notification, they will not be able to assist you.
